Professor Heathcock is fascinated with organic reactions, understanding their intimate personalities, and applying them for the construction of intricate structures. He and his students and postdoctoral coworkers engage in 'multistep synthesis.' The synthetic goals are complex, polycyclic natural products, often possessing unusual biological activity. However, the purpose of the research is not just to prepare compounds for biological or pharmacological testing, but rather to learn something new about the creative process of synthesis design. For this reason, the synthetic targets are chosen because it is thought that their novel structures are likely to lead the experimentalist to unusual chemistry. The goal is to use sound mechanistic reasoning to invent multistep syntheses that are sufficiently non-obvious that they will serve as object lessons for other scientists, and thereby contribute to a general elevation of the level of sophistication of the science of large-molecule synthes is.
